Now that is really cool. Good old MS
In '83 I was working for DEC and had access to things like BASIC+.
I was amazed at what they could do on a micoprocessor.
In my early days :-) I was given a project to develop programs
for an LSI-11/02 with 28KW of memory and RX02 8" floppies. I
got the project because the mainframe programmers I worked with
did not believe anything serious could be done in a machine that
small. I developed programs that later e\went production using
MACRO-11, Pascal, Fortran and COBOL. I doubt the products of
modern computer science education could duplicate what I did.
Efficiency is no longer a consideration. Just throw more hardware
at the problem.
